Publish or Perish is a very helpful application that is developed by Anne-Wil Harzing to assist students and other scholars in their academic studies and research. You can search for academic journals according to the author, publication dates, or field of study and the application will give you a list. 

Who, what, when

There are a lot of academic articles that have been published by the greatest authors over the years that it will take you some time before you are able to see what you are looking for specifically. Publish and Perish will help you narrow down your search results in order to find journals faster. You can begin your search by entering information on certain fields. There are 4 subcategories under the Citation Analysis tab that you will see at the side of the application’s window. The first one you will see is the Author Impact Analysis tab where you can enter an author’s name and publication dates. You will also see different academic fields on the right side of the window and you can tick-off of the box beside them if they are not relevant to your search. Click on Lookup once everything has been settled and you will get a list of your author’s journals, articles, and the number of times they have been used and cited in other academic studies. This goes the same to the second tab, which is Journal impact analysis. Looking up journals under this tab will show you the number of times said journal has been cited in other academic works regardless of the authors. 

As for the General Citation Search tab,  you will be allowed to enter more information that will further narrow down your search results. Besides the author’s name and publication dates, you can now also enter words, phrases, and sentences. This will give you close to specific research results. The last tab, Multi-query Center, will show you a list of all the research queries you have entered before. This is so you will no longer have to conduct another research, which will save you time and energy.
